Back in those days, there was darkness, and so we created light. 
There was hunger, and so we invented agriculture. 
There was sickness, and so we created medicine.

Back in *these* days, well, there was still sickness sometimes, and many of us continued to create medicine... and some of us created brand new tools for online rituals that anyone could join the world-over.

This December 19th, we'll be hosting Secular Solstice Online, for the American continental timezones. (Other timezones also welcome if you feel like staying up late/early). We'll be singing together using custom software that we built to enable Solstice, telling stories, and joining together for an online festival and afterparty.

Note that while the site is up, we may be doing random testing and bug fixes over the next 24 hours, so expect the site to behave weirdly.

Reminder:
– Requires Chrome
– Works much better with a WIRED headset (not bluetooth)
– Works much better with WIRED internet (not wifi)
– You may need to close other tabs or applications that are takng up lots of bandwidth.
– Having candles is nice

 

The "virtual doors" will open at 4:30pm PT, 7:30 pm ET. There will be some initial period as we wait for people to file in. We will aim to start the ceremony at 4:45pm, but it might be a bit delayed depending on whether there are unexpected technical hiccups for a lot of people.

Who is organizing this ? Ie if i wanted to read something, who should I contact?

It's being organized by myself, Alex Altair, and Laura Vaughn. I think PMing me is a good place to start and I can transition it into some kind of group chat afterwards.

Pretty sure Raemon is a fine contact.
